Enemies of the Desert (Silent Secrets Series Book 3) by Lisette Kristensen – Review by Michelle Austin

Enemies of the DesertEnemies of the Desert by Lisette Kristensen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Enemies of the Desert was a good 4 star read and book three in the Silent Secrets Series. I was pulled in right from the beginning.

We continue from the previous book in the series. In this book we get a different look at Blackbird, a little bit more of a personal level. Things take an interesting twist when Blackbird comes face-to-face with her enemy.

Can Blackbird stop the evil plans and beat her enemy?

Overall I really enjoyed this book, we get suspense, action, danger and so much more. All of the secondary characters were great. Blackbird quickly became one of my favorites, she was a strong character and I would love to see more from her. This can’t be read as a stand alone. If you’re looking for a great series to read, 1-click and get started today.

Cult (Feisty Lawyers Book 3) by Seelie Kay – Review by Michelle Austin

CultCult by Seelie Kay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cult was a great 5 star read and book three in the Feisty Lawyers Series.
I was once again pulled in right from the beginning and loved it.

Hope finds herself getting a roommate (Cookie/Cate) and I have to say I had a lol moment when she took down someone that she knew was following her.
Dianna and Anders find themselves going to Madison to investigate God’s Delight, there have been several student disappearances that seem to be connected.

Cate and Hope have attended rallies for God’s Delight, Hope can feel that there isn’t something right about it but Cate is being pulled in by it. Dianna ends up going undercover as a student to try and gather more information. Things take a dangerous twist and Dianna goes missing.

Can they solve the case and get Dianna back safely?

There is so much more, you will be on the edge of your seat. All of the characters were great, I have to say Cate gave me some LOL moments, she is a spunky gal. This can be read as a stand alone but I really suggest starting with book one so you can get to know the characters. I look forward to reading more from Seelie Kay and this series. 1-click and get started today.

Salty Sebastian (Smirk Series book 3) by Jen Luerssen – Review by Michelle Austin

Salty SebastianSalty Sebastian by Jen Luerssen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Salty Sebastian was a great 5 star read. And book three in the Smirk Series.

While in Vegas for a wine convention Kit meets Sebastian. He sort of saves her from a humiliating hook up that gave me a LOL moment. After a few hours of flirting they end up having a hot and steamy evening.

Fate steps in and two years later Kit ends up getting hired by Sebastian’s partner to work an internship at their winery. She has a dream to run her own winery one day. Sebastian has always kept boundaries with the interns, will he be able to with Kit? Can these two have a future?

I’m on track now and I”m not letting a one-night stand in Vegas derail me. Even the hottest night of my life -Kit

I really loved Kit she had me lol so many times. I loved the nickname she came up with for Sebastian as well, it fit perfectly. Sebastian was an alpha male with a dominant side to him. Kit really pushed his buttons at times. The connection these two had was great. If you’re looking for a great romance with some lol moments this is the book for you. Jen does a great pulling you in with her writing. I look forward to reading more from her.

Shattered (The Torzial Affair Book 1) by Via Mari – Review by Michelle Austin

Shattered (The Torzial Affair Book 1)Shattered by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shattered was a great 5 star read and book one in The Torzial Affair series.
I was pulled right in from the beginning and couldn’t put it down until I was done. This is even better than the first series and I loved that one as well.

Jenny and Brian meet while they are best man and maid of honor for their best friends wedding. They have an instant connection that gets a little heated, Brian does something that triggers an unexpected reaction from Jenny and she flees.

He is intrigued by her and wants to know more about her and why she fled. He typically doesn’t want anything more than one night but something is different this time.

Jenny owns Torzial and she doesn’t really know who Brian is. He’s got a lot more power than she realizes. She was instantly attracted to him and when these two reconnect we get quite the hot and steamy scenes.

There is so much going on and my emotions were all over the place. There are some things from the past that come up and create challenges. I really loved both Brian and Jenny they really complimented each other. I will also say that there are some scenes that may be triggers for some. All of the secondary characters were great. Via does a great job of pulling you right in with her writing. I highly recommend this series and the one prior you will love them. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Unraveled by Aubrey Bondurant – Review by Michelle Austin

UnraveledUnraveled by Aubrey Bondurant
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Unraveled was a great 5 star read.

You get pulled right in from the beginning with Layla getting some shocking news and discovering her boyfriend cheating on her when she needed his support. She makes a decision that will take her on a new journey in her life.

Kellan’s ex shows up at a bar he’s at, it’s been six years and it’s definitely not a coincidence.
Russ comes up with a plan to help his friend Kellan by calling his sister Layla. When Layla walks in he is stunned at how beautiful she is and she’s pretending to be his girlfriend. He was instantly attracted to her and wanted more with her.

This story takes right off from here and I will warn that you will need a lot of kleenex. I’m emotionally exhausted after this book. All of the secondary characters were great, they all added a good element to the story. There are so many great elements to this story. Going through the journey with Layla and Kellan gives you such a realistic view on what people go through and the daily struggles. You can’t help but wonder if there will be a HEA for these two. If you’re looking for a great emotional read, this is the book for you. Aubrey does a great job with her writing and I can’t wait to read more from her. 1-click and get started today.

Out of the Box Collection by Jennifer Theriot – Review by Michelle Austin

Out of the Box CollectionOut of the Box Collection by Jennifer Theriot
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Out of the Box Collection that features Out of the Box Awakening, Out of the Box Regifted and Out of the Box Everlasting was a 5+ read. My emotions were all over the place and I needed several kleenex to make it through.

We start with Olivia moving to Chicago to be with her husband who just transferred for work. When she gets there his friend Ash is the one who picks her up. And of course her husband conveniently seems to be out of town, alot. She starts to see a side to Ash that is something that she never had with her husband, they enjoy each others company but never cross a line. When Olivia gets some devastating news, Ash is there for her. Can there possibly be a future for these two?

As we move forward through all three books we see so many different levels of life experiences with twists and turns. There is tragedy and some hidden secrets that resurface. I really was rooting for Olivia to find the happiness that she truly deserved and Ash tugged at my heartstrings. All of the secondary characters were great, I loved all the kids and the band members. I did not care for Olivia’s husband and his actions. This story really makes you think about things as you are getting older. You don’t realize how much you rely on some people until they are no longer there and you are left trying to rebuild. The details of the story were amazing and pulled me right in. Having all three books at once was great, I didn’t have to wait to find out what was coming next. If you’re looking for a great second chance romance series, this is a must read. I highly suggest 1-clicking and getting started as soon as you can.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dracones Guardian: Dark Dragon was a great 5 star read. This is a great paranormal/fantasy romance. Once I started I couldn’t put it down.

This is a great story with Zander and Chloe. Zander is an archangel committed to keeping people safe from fallen angels. When he ends up on earth he has his children to keep safe. Than he meets Chloe. There is something about her that draws him in. The thing is, she is human. Things take a serious turn when an enemy makes themselves known.

My emotions were all over the place. The author did a great job with the detail and pulling you right into the scenes, I felt like I was right there at times. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. You can read as a stand alone but I suggest reading the books prior to this one, you will connect better with the characters. I can’t wait to read more from this author and series.

Tracking NumbersTracking Numbers by Janice M. Whiteaker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tracking Numbers was a great 5 star read and book one in the Lost Boys MC series. I love MC and I was pulled right into this story.

Tracker is assigned to protect Kerri by her father. Kerri is very strong, spunky and quite the handful for him. The bantering between these two was great. There is an instant connection between them.

Tracker is a hot alpha male who found help from Kerri’s father when he was young. He eventually joined the King’s Knights. Kerri always told herself she wasn’t going to fall for a biker but when she met Tracker, there was something different about him. He was determined to show her he wasn’t like the rest of them.

Overall I really enjoyed this read. These two helped each other in so many ways. They were meant for each other and I really enjoyed their story. We do get a HEA which I was happy with. I look forward to reading more from this series and author.
